More options

Hover over a chart, and in the top right corner there are 3 dots - for more options.

Here you can choose to see the graph data as a table. If you see a blue "i" like above, it means there is too much data for the graph to show all of it. If this happens, choose "Export data" (under more options) to download a data file which includes all data including what can't be displayed in the graph or table.

Beside the 3 dots is a "Focus mode" button, which enlarges the chart to fill the space.
